Try this, thank user tom-az if this helps you:
"I also had the problem with the cursor in the middle of the screen. I tried many things, until I came to a solution that works for me:
I start the game via the 'MassEffectAndromeda.exe' in Windows Explorer with the setting 'Run program as administrator',
Have now played 3 hours and the problem is no longer occurred."
You can set games (or other programs) to permanently start in administrator mode by going to the ME:A main folder and right clicking MassEffectAndromeda.exe, going to properties, compatibility, and then clicking the "run as administrator" box.
Just raise your brightness or change your monitors color using Nvidia Control Panel, my blacks aren't crushed at all.
Haha well aren't you quite the resoucesfull one, lol. In all seriousness, glad you found a fix. Hopefully people not using ReShade run into the problem too and trick Bioware into fixing that for us.
Wow really appreciate the positive feedback. You made my day, friend.
Glad to know the bloom isn't overdone. Yea I like just left the tutorial planet even though i had the game since launch. Been trying to keep working on my two ReShades for this plus I just launched my youtube channel. Lot's of work, but really happy it's all starting to pay off.
Hey! Thanks for the quick response! I actually read your comments on the nexus forums, and the not moving your mouse in menus and also alt-tabbing quickly will make it stop.
If I had to take a wild guess I'd say its something to do with Reshade 3's overlay system, but that's nothing that we can really do till they patch it.
At any rate even if its annoying I'm completely and utterly unwilling to NOT use your preset, its that goshdarned amazing.
I did try fullscreen and it does the same thing, although mine did not crash when moving back and forth from windowed borderless to fullscreen. I pretty much only play in windowed borderless anyway because I have two monitors. Mostly the problem for me came in when I was going to the other monitor to look things up, etc.
So far the bloom seems fine to me! I don't use the grain or the cinematic bars myself. Also, thanks for the sharpness key fix, I had noticed it didn't work. But that I definitely love.
Really appreciate the kind words!
So I play with a gamepad and the cursor seems to stay out of my way even after alt tabbing, for the most part. If it comes up for me, if I alt-tab out and back again, it goes away right away with the controller connected.
Someone from another page says that if you don't let the cursor move after selecting a dilaougue option, that seems to fix it for him. I think he uses a keyboard-mouse.
Finally i suggest seeing if you can get the game to run in borderless-windowed mode (that's how I run it and the problems don't come up during cut-scenes). If you already run in borderless, then try regular fullscreen BUT be prepared to cut-paste your ReShade files into a seperate folder and put them back because fullscreen makes my ME:A instant CTD with ReShade. So you'll need to take the files out of your ME:A folder and rerun the game plain and change it back to borderless-windowed if it CTD's and you get stuck in a CTD loop.
Does that make sense?
Feedback question, how's the bloom? I've got further into the game and it seems the bloom is a bit overdone in some scenes (mostly in cutscenes), is it ok for you? I can patch it to be a little less noticeable. Or I can make it toggleable with one of the numpad buttons.
Thanks again for your comments! Oh also make sure your drivers are updated. I'm not sure if this problem would be resolved by that but I hope so. My drivers aren't updated if there is a new on since ME:A came out.
I love this preset. It is seriously amazing! That being said, I hope you could help me with a problem I'm having.
If I alt-tab out of the game, my mouse cursor has a tendency to show up in the middle of the screen. It's not a huge deal in the game, but in cutscenes its immersion-breaking.
Sometimes I can get it to chill out by going to the menus and clicking through them, but its impossible to do that every time.
I know the simplest answer is hey, don't alt-tab! But I was hoping maybe we could figure out another one.
Is everything working ok for you now? Sounds like it? Yea creating it externally should work fine.
Let me know if I can help further. And thanks!
sorry, i just ended up creating it externally. preset is great.
sorry noob question; i'm interested in this preset.
Reshade v3 is already installed due to a different game.
i follow the directions but no .ini is being created in the game folder. what am i doing wrong?
Really glad you like it! Glad to controls work. Yea I really miss the somberness of ME1's graphics style and colors.
Thank you @AssassinsDecree, It's really nice now ^^. It's the same atmosphere than ME 1-3 .
Thanks @Paleplatine! That really makes my day. Have a good one friend!
thanks a lot dude :D; It's perfect !
To be clear, pressing 3 on the keys right above the keyboard or below the Function keys (F1, F2, F3, etc.) won't do anything. It has to be the keys on the numberpad.
I set it up so you should be able to just press "3" on your keyboard's numpad (even with a controller connected) and it should cut the film grain off. If that doesn't work, then open the ReShade menu (default control is shift+f2) and look along the left side of the window that opens up showing all the graphics effects. You'll see one called Film Grain and it should have a box next to it like all the other settings. Click that box, which should be blue, to disable Film Grain.
All effects can be toggled in this way. Any effect that has a blue box means its enabled.
Hope this helps!
Thanks so much for your interest in my ReShade! If those instructions don't work, I'll post a link for a version of my mod with the Film Grain disabled.
Hello, I like your work but the film grain is a little bit too grainy for me (I ve disabled the ig film grain). Which settings can I modify to change that plz and have something more smooth?
Check out my vids on this. You can see fine in what appear to be black spots while the game is actually in motion. Appreciate the feedback. May lighten it a little.
Then you'll love my other preset for this. Not a dark to be found.
Way way way too dark, crushed blacks. Common sweetfx mistake: believing massive contrast and crushed blacks looks good.
